17. LBJ’s alleged mistress did not expose the conspiracy.

Madeleine Duncan Brown

Years after President Johnson’s death, a woman named Madeleine Duncan Brown claimed to be his longtime mistress and further said that LBJ was her son’s father. Conspiracy theorists, who refuse to accept the majority of the facts in the case, or the honesty of the Warren Commission, tend to embrace Brown’s accusations uncritically, because she said things they wanted to hear. Unfortunately, for them, Brown’s stories were not consistent and she was never able to produce any evidence beyond her own word.

In addition to once being convicted of forging a relative’s will and claiming that men other than Johnson had fathered her child, Brown told easily disprovable lies about LBJ’s alleged involvement in President Kennedy’s assassination. Most famously, she claimed that she was at a party with Johnson and several other notable people, like FBI Director J. Edger Hoover and former Vice-President Richard Nixon, in the Dallas home of Texas oil man, Clint Murchison, the night before the assassination. In reality, Johnson was with his wife and the Kennedy’s in Fort Worth that night, while Hoover was back in DC and Murchison was elsewhere in Texas, and did not own the home where Brown claimed the party was held. Only Nixon happened to be in Dallas that night, and he was at a bottler’s convention, working as an attorney for his client at the time, Pepsi Cola.

Despite the fact that Brown had zero credibility, that has not stopped equally dishonest people, like conspiracy peddler Roger Stone, from citing her as and honest and factual witness.
